Rated 4.59/5 based on 816 customer reviews

Further adjustments can be made to the HIPS filtering, by turning on automatic mode (enabled operations), smart mode (receive notifications on suspicious events only), interactive mode (receive prompts to confirm operations), policy-based mode (blocked operations), or learning mode (set rules after each operation).The software utility integrates a security feature that scans Microsoft Office documents before opening them, along with files auto-downloaded by Internet Explorer (like Active X objects).Installation is faster than before and an initial scan is auto-triggered 20 minutes after setup completion or reboot. The developer keeps the neatly organized structure that it has already familiarized us with, while trying to make ESET NOD32 Antivirus friendlier than before. This can be noticed by putting the configuration settings in contrast with version 8, for instance.The AV tool now has slide buttons for enabling and disabling features, along with tooltip descriptions next to each option.Internet protection is facilitated for web access, email clients, and anti-phishing.Apart from the fact that any of the three components can be disabled, you can deactivate HTTP and HTTPS verification, change ports used by HTTPS, configure Threat Sense, and manage a list with allowed and blocked addresses, along with URLs excluded from checkups.ESET NOD32 Antivirus just got updated to version 9 a couple of days ago.

ESET NOD32 Antivirus provides logs about important program events, reputation of running processes based on popularity among other ESET users, threat and spam statistics, and graphs with file system activity in real time (read and written data).

Other than that, it implements a troubleshooting wizard for resolving firewall issues with specific programs or devices, which suggests a new set of rules.

A dynamic help documentation available online jumps to the page of your current location in the GUI.

Developed to protect computers from all popular types of malware, this program features preset and custom scan profiles, advanced heuristics and configuration settings, web access, email client and anti-phishing protection, along with extra security tools.

As in the previous edition, you can enable or disable PUP (potentially unwanted programs) detection during setup.
